Capsule in You Tube video

Here is the Orion like capsule in a You Tube response to Epic Future Space. 
I'm using Black Screen in this video and the black light lighting helped when I combined the shots.

Major Matt Mason, Toy Bashing #3

I haven't done one of these MMM toy bashing vids in a while. This isn't really about toy bashing as much is it is about creating a capsule to scale for the MMM toy line. In this case a Orion size capsule. Other toy collectors have created Mercury capsules but I wanted to make a webcam movie about what is going on in the here and now, with 60's space toys. 

The two clips at the end of the movie were done with Photo Booth effects. The mirror effect clip has lighting only from the screen of my computer in front of my studios black velvet back drop. The second clip has lighting from a black light and footage from NASA in the background.
